Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Charlie Miller

"To me the whole business of remastering and editing is a total black art and I have no idea what’s involved, but it has always struck me as odd that the Miller versions often introduce problems that weren’t there originally. In fact I noticed it happening with so many shows that I began to avoid his work in favour of less good remasters simply because I prefer to hear music without pops and clicks wherever possible (even if it means a less clear overall sound). Then I thought how odd this is considering how Charlie Miller is admired and venerated so I thought I’d just put this out there and see if anyone had any comments to make."

I think to say that he often introduces problems to recordings is a very bold statement. In fact, whenever looking up the versions of shows, I ALWAYS grab the charlie miller one first. His mixes are usually the most well balanced, and patched.

to be honest the whole time i was reading this part of your post i was thinking "this guy must be crazy" No offense. I guess to me the overall sound is more important then a little blip here and there. It just don't bother me that much. Different strokes for different fokes i guess.

maybe he could just be unaware? it does seem crazy to go through all that work and have something so tiny added.
